Named after a slang term for an “old sailor,” this pet store and grooming spa is devoted to serving its South Street Seaport neighbors. The food is almost entirely organic and includes California Natural and Innova, as well as offbeat treats like Bowser Beer (an alcohol-free dog brew made of malt extract and beef stock). Custom accessories like beds, collars, and coats are another specialty here. Owners can even commission a cartoon-like portrait of their pets by artist Heather Piccoli. The grooming area is separated from the store by a glass wall so owners can watch their dog or cat being attended—and the staff goes the extra mile, clipping nails and hand-drying the animals. For even more pampering, on weekdays clients can drop off pets as early as 8 A.M. for a full day that includes grooming, two walks, supervised playtime, and treats.
